a nice open concert hall

We went to see a concert there. We liked to spend a few hours in this environment that is well designed and offer a good view.

Hey, we had a great time, quietly, climbing up the bowl with no one around and looking out to the Hollywood sign over the bowl (go up to about half way up the back part). Peaceful and lovely to read all the historical items on the sides of the walls with pictures of how it used to be seventy plus... More

Great spot for photographs of the city and for views of the Hollywood Bowl itself. Some great houses to see in the locality too.

Took a trolley to see this landmark! The guide took us up to the seats and we took pics with the stage as a backdrop. So many legends have graced this stage - it was surreal!

You don't need a tour bus. Hike, take a bike or taxi up Mulholland Drive to the Jerome C. Daniel Overlook over the Hollywood Bowl. "The most easterly of the Conservancy's Scenic Overlooks, the Hollywood Bowl Scenic Overlook is situated to provide a beautiful view of the Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater, downtown Los Angeles, and, on a clear day, the ocean...

A must visit spot for a night view of the LA area. It was absolutely beautiful! Make the visit! The travel to get to the overlook is an attraction in itself.
